Leicester strengthened their grip on third place in the Premier League as Kelechi Iheanacho’s superb strike brought a 2-1 win against Crystal Palace on Monday.
Brendan Rogers’ side trailed to Wilfried Zaha’s first-half goal at the King Power Stadium.
But Timothy Castagne equalised soon after the interval with his first goal since September.
And Nigeria striker Iheanacho sealed Leicester’s second successive victory when he scored with a thunderous finish 10 minutes from full-time.
Leicester are four points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea and seven ahead of fifth-placed West Ham as they bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
With five games left, the FA Cup finalists have already matched their total of 62 points from last season.
A late collapse cost the Foxes a place in the Champions League in 2020, but Rodgers’ men are firmly on course to make amends thanks to the sparkling form of Iheanacho.
Going into February, Iheanacho had not scored a single league goal this season, but no one has netted more than his 10 in the competition since then.
